Beer-Cycle Bottle Opener by Raphael Betillon

Beer-Cycle Bottle Opener by Raphael Betillon

Combining two of our favorite things (bikes & beer!), French architect Raphael Betillon takes forks from old bicycles found in junkyards or bike cemeteries, cuts them in half and repurposes the bike hardware into a one-of-a-kind beer bottle opener.

Each beer-cycle or "Decapsuleur" is hand-made in Raphael's apartment in Toulouse, in the south of France. Since he gets all of his bicycles from bike cemeteries, they are, in his words, "ultra-ultra limited editions". So, if you're the type of holiday gift-giver who plans early, these might be a unique gift for the avid bike enthusiast on your list.

We also wanted to say hello to Raphael's mom in France who reads Apartment Therapy every morning!

See more photos of beer-cycles on the Beer Cycle Tumblr page.

Limited Edition beer-cycles are available for $90 plus shipping by emailing Raphael.
